What it means to me

“Dance with Me.”  This is what I hear the most from God.  When I am questioning or doubting, and I am searching for hope, I hear, “Come and dance with Me, and you will be renewed.”  When things are going well, and I am praising God, I hear, “Come and dance with Me, and we’ll celebrate.”  When I am hurting, and I feel like I can’t go on, I hear, “Come and dance with Me, and I will give you rest.”

I started dancing when I was three, and I started teaching when I was 16.  Throughout my life, there are many days when the only reason I got out of bed was to go and dance.  It was my safe haven.  It was the only place where I truly felt like I belonged.  And it was the only place where I connected with me.

I knew about God growing up.  I was raised in the Catholic church – went to a Catholic school unitl I was a junior in high school.  But I didn’t really know God until I was 23.  Since then, dance has changed for me.  It is still my safe haven, but I realize why God has given me this talent.  Not only is it my connection to me, it is my connection to God.  I have never felt closer to Him than when I dance.  When I am on stage, there is no one else around – it is only me and God.  I dance for Him.

My faith began because God spoke to me in the only language I knew at the time – dance.  Now, He continues to speak to me through dance.  I feel like the person He created me to be when I’m dancing.  It is my form of worship.  Dancing with my Daddy – there is no better place to be.
